It’s all here
Comelec’s been trying to downplay the massive data breach, called by international outfits as the biggest government data-related breach in history, ever since it happened. For some reason, it hasn’t been making a lot of news in the local space, but that’s soon to change.
One of the biggest issues with the hack was how voluminous the data is, meaning that there’s really not an easy way to search through the entire thing. Well, there’s one now – a website has made the data easily searchable by anyone by simply putting in your complete name.
This is a privacy nightmare, as the data now shows sensitive personal information, including the street, barangay and city where the person lives, including their marital status and age. Needless to say, a hack of this size is simply unacceptable.
